Dirty Diamonds—An All-Girl Comic Anthology, no. 7 (Imagination). Philadelphia: Dirty Diamonds, Fall 2016. Small Press Expo Collection, Serial and Government Publications Division, Library of Congress (044.01.00) Used with permission.


Dirty Diamonds, which began in 2011, follows in the footsteps of Twisted Sisters and Wimmen’s Comix, all-female anthologies that were published in response to the male dominated Underground Comix scene in the 1970s. Each issue of Dirty Diamonds features works by female cartoonists from around the world on a particular theme and highlights the experiences and creative talents of women in comics today.
